I don't really have a favourite word, but one of my least favourite for some reason is moist.

prodigious is fun to say.

And I really like how cleave has two meanings that are opposite of each other.

I like preternatural. And I like elevenses. I always love saying something like "I can't do that right now, as I'm having a preternaturally good elevenses." My dp is used to my oddball ways, lol.

I also like racecar because it is the same word backward.. and i do love balance and equality.

But I agree, porpoise is VERY nice to say.

I like "monotonous" and "melancholy."

Fun to say even if they aren't fun to be

I agree! It just sounds icky. I was just thinking about how unfortunate it is that I can think of my least favorite word right away, but I can't say I have a favorite word.
